    Big Lawn Mower Blade Knife

    High carbon steel lawn mower blades harden & temper up into great knives.
    Here is a large camp/survival knife ground from a mower blade.
    Large old files make up into great knives also...but, they are too brittle "as is" & need to have their hardness tempered back.

    Good stuff QK - I have made a file knife years ago - after suitable tempering - and old files were real good steel too.

    Other thing - made, or well correction - started making and never finished - a knife from a vehicle semi-elliptical spring. More good metal.

    I'm guessing those holes might come in "handy" for lashing it to a pole AKA "make yer own emergency spear"
